New Career?

It’s been nearly two weeks since my last cigarette and I’ve started doing things a little differently. First of all, I haven’t written much of anything despite my good intentions in the evenings. Work has me stressed out to the max which means by the time I make it to my humble abode, I feel as though any attempt to look at a computer screen would result in my brain leaking out of my ears. So no, I haven’t written anything, but I am brainstorming. The weird, Chantix induced dreams have helped with that bit.

Now that I don’t smoke, I find myself singing more. I have a long drive in the mornings and afternoons and instead of puffing away on my cigarette, I flip through the radio stations to find songs to sing along with. The unfortunate side effect of this is that I can’t sing and I hurt my own ears which means I can only turn the music up louder to keep from hearing myself. Which means I then sing even louder.  Add to this my strange urge to listen to hip hop. That’s not a bad thing…unless you feel the need to dance while you’re listening to it…behind the wheel of a car going seventy plus…yeah, you see my problem?

Today feels like Friday for some reason, but that might just be wishful thinking.

Anyway, I stumbled across this funny video for a song I really like and thought I’d share it with y’all. It has nothing to do with What’s Playing Wednesdays despite the band’s name. I just thought the video concept was great and the song is wonderful. There’s something about this band that really draws me in. I think it has to be the singer’s voice combined with the distorted guitars, the lyrics and the almost old school rhythms. Whatever it is, I love The Black Keys and I hope you’ll like Tighten Up.
